A 7-year-old boy was shot in the head Thursday morning at a home in Fort Lauderdale, according to authorities.

The shooting occurred around 9:30 a.m. in the 1500 block of NW Second Avenue.

Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Casey Liening says no foul play is suspected.

However, it remains unclear whether the boy, who was identified as Breyson Plummer by his by grandmother, accidentally shot himself or was accidentally shot by someone else.

The child was taken to Broward Health Medical Center. His condition has not been released.

According to neighbors, Plummer lives at the home where the shooting occurred, as do several other children.

Some of those people told Miami television station WPLG that they have complained about issues at the home for several months.
